They would have been coming down today, but the foolish panic buying of gasoline at north Texas gas stations up here put paid to that. There's not enough gas available right now for the trucks to get down there and back. :grumble I can't believe people were so easily frightened by a stupid news reporter who shot his mouth off without having any facts handy. :roll:

Hits my anger button, also. Plenty of inventory, though there are a few logistical issues. None that can't be overcome.

I just left voicemail on his cellphone. Hopefully he gets it.

I talked with Charles' wife the day after Harvey hit. She said "we live on a bit of a hill, so we are OK". I have not talked to him since then (the Buffalo Bayou has kept me busy). I will try to call in a bit to see if there is anything new we can find out.

I know some people are still recovering from the storm, so I am putting out some feelers to see who is
up for having breakfast this Friday Sept 8th. I just called Kelley's and they are open for business.
I got a text from Pumaguy and he will be able to make it. How about the others?

No, I haven't received a text from Pumaguy - how about the others?

Oh you can text me - but it'll fall into a black hole. Check out my attached screenshot...

  • Yes, I'm up to (almost) 4500 texts that I've never read, and
  • Yes, I have the texting app in a folder called "Worthless" (which only holds apps that I'd delete if I could, but the iPhone won't let me)

When I get to 5000, I'll throw a party!

It doesn't look like I'm going to make it tomorrow. I wouldn't be very good company anyway.

Have fun folks.

Very understandable. I'm sorry for your travail. Don't hesitate to ask if you need help.

I'm hoping to make it if the aliens and Murphy cooperate. I'm already hungry.

Actually, it would only take a word from you and we would likely relocate our breakfast to your home. You buy the tacos, and we'll help with clean-up!

Just kidding - we'd bring the tacos as well :cool:
